Private islands for rent are the domain of the rich and famous, right?

Well that’s all very true, and most private islands for rent are exclusively in the range of celebrities and business magnates. Yet, don’t you want to know that there are some less pricey options within your means? Here are 9 Private Islands You Can Actually Afford to Rent:
1. Dunbar Rock, Honduras
Price: $1,200 per week
A craggy outcrop rises from the azure water, topped by a shimmering white villa. This is the stunning Dunbar Rock, in Sandy Bay, Guanaja, in the Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras. It’s not a totally secluded private island to rent because there are some stilted water bungalows nearby but it is a stand-alone property ideal for divers. It boasts magnificent views of the ocean and back to the island where there’s plenty of facilities on the resort plantation.
